On Tuesday 19 February 2019, we will hold our first Morocco conference in the capital city of Rabat. The theme will be Building a new economic paradigm.

Morocco has many of the hallmarks of an exciting emerging market, with huge potential for investment, growth and trade. It is also well-placed to position itself as a gateway to the African continent, with many keen to secure this reputation through effective economic policies and regulation.

Yet strong employment and economic growth lag behind expectations and there still remains many opportunities to capitalise on.

We are honoured that H.E. Abdellatif Jouahri, Governor, Bank Al-Maghrib will deliver the opening keynote address at the event. He will outline the economic strategy for Morocco and how the banking and regulatory environment will play its part in ensuring the region can achieve its goals.

Throughout this one-day event, there will also be a number of discussions regarding strategic opportunities for banking and financial markets; the impact of One-Belt, One-Road on Morocco; sustainable employment and SME development through innovation.

Special sessions and interviews will also take place with leading local and international players represented.
